No Jail Time, No Bail Posted for Client Who Had Serious Mental Health Issues

The client was charged with possession of unlawful machine guns.  Harris built a defense team and convinced the federal judge to release him without any secured bail posted. During a passionate plea for help for his client during sentencing, Harris convinced the court to bypass incarceration and to grant probation where his client would have the opportunity to receive mental health treatment. The client agreed to stop collecting weapons and to give up the guns he had in his possession. See my blog about 3553a factors that helped my client in this case
